In the heart of Mayfair, and within easy walking distance of countless galleries, the boutique stores on Regent Street and New Bond Street, and the flagship store of Victoria Beckham, which lies directly across the street on Dover Street.
A successful mix of historic atmosphere, contemporary design, British understatement, and art. The walls are hung with works by Tracey Emin, Mat Collishaw, Bridget Riley, Michael Landy, and Terence Donovan.
The HIX restaurant, The Donovan Bar with its great variety of cocktails and photo art by Terence Donovan, a tea room, a library, a small spa with 4 treatment rooms, and a gym.
Large breakfast buffet with egg dishes and hot food à la carte, excellent British cuisine at the HIX restaurant, and legendary afternoon tea served in the historic English Tea Room, whose fare is also available in a "tea-tox" version (calorie-reduced, prepared without flour).
The hotel's 117 elegant rooms and suites are spread across 11 interconnected townhouses and bear the handwriting of designer Olga Polizzi. Her signature feature is to combine the styles and designs of different periods. The rooms are rather large by London standards. Bathrooms are stocked with Ren cosmetics.
All of the staff look after the welfare of the guests in such a solicitous, attentive and amicable way that it makes you wonder how you could have ever settled for anything less.

Brown's Hotel Hotel, London

Brown's Hotel was actually the very first hotel in London. It was opened in 1837 under the watchful eyes of Sarah Brown, Lady Byron's personal maid, and of her husband's, James Brown. The historic hotel consists of 11 interconnected residential buildings, and looks back on a fascinating history. Many illustrious writers, such as Agatha Christie, have counted among the hotel's regulars. Her thriller “At Bertram's Hotel” from the year 1965 is said to have been inspired by Brown's Hotel. Bought up by Rocco Forte in 2003, it was refurbished at great cost and has been part of The Rocco Forte Collection as a 5-star hotel since 2005. The house has been thoroughly upgraded, and flaunts the signature features of Italian designer Olga Polizzi who always makes lavish use of materials and endows each hotel room with its own authentic cosiness. Ideal for traditionalists, art connoisseurs and fashionistas who love to stay in the middle of Mayfair.

While enjoying a palpable sense of history here, you need not make do without any high-tech amenities. When it opened in 1837, Brown's Hotel was the very first hotel in London.
The rooms overlooking the courtyard are quite dark. We recommend that you take a room that looks out on fashionable Dover Street.
